Nothing Special: Rohatsu Talk Five and Q&A, Henry Shukman (Videos)

January 24, 2022

Henry explores kensho, awakening, zen death and the destruction of Zen. What Sanbo Zen is really trying to convey, says Henry, is the non-existence of Sanbo Zen, but that’s no so easy to achieve.

Henry closes this talk exploring the Three Refuges, Buddha, Dharma and Sangha. These are treasures and refuges that show us our true nature, that we can trust.
